Characterization of Natural IgM Antibodies Recognizing Oxidation-Specific Epitopes on Circulating Microvesicles
Natural IgM antibodies specific for oxidation-specific epitopes (OSEs) have been found to bind to circulating microvesicles (MVs), also known as microparticles. This chapter describes how endogenous natural IgM antibodies bound to circulating MV subsets can be characterized on the one hand, and how monoclonal natural IgM antibodies can be used to characterize subsets of circulating MVs on the other hand.
